Taylor's is one of the most highly respected producers of aged tawny Port wines. 20 Year Old Tawny Port is fully matured in seasoned oak casks each holding about 630 litres of wine. Here, over many years of ageing, the Port wine gradually takes on its characteristic amber ‘tawny' colour, slowly developing the complex mellow flavours and the smooth luscious palate which are the hallmarks of this style of port.
Taylor's blends its magnificent 20 year old tawny Ports from its extensive reserves of old cask aged Ports matured in the firm's cool and tranquil cellars (known as ‘lodges’) in Oporto on Portugal’s Atlantic coast.
Intense amber tawny colour. Opulent and voluptuous nose of complex spicy, jammy and nutty aromas, hints of orange flower and a fine oakiness coming from the long period of aging in cask. The palate is full of very rich and concentrated flavour and has a long mellow finish.
With a lovely colour from the wood ageing, the nose reveals dried fruits and raisin aromas. The smoothness and balance on the palate gives a good indication of the ageing process this wine has been through.
